    Great place for job stability

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Vice President  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Vice President in New York, NY

    Pros

    At times of recession, as we just had, SG did not lay off nearly as many people as other financial institutions. As such, it's a great place for a stable income and job security

    Cons

    The price you pay for job stability is reflected in your paycheck. Also job stability implies that people should be let go are not, adding to you having to pull "deadweight". Couple that with a huge bureaucracy and you have one hard place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect talent. Pay your performers. Cut the deadest of the deadweight. Don't assume a French person can do the job better just because he/she is French

    Pros

    Manager nice, and people are great. Everyone gets along. Benefits are good, not the worst hour, get out around 5:30 or 6, depending on the day.

    Cons

    Absolutely no career path. Higher Management blocks you if you want to move internally or develop your career. Only way to advance is to leave the company and come back in a higher position. They have just capped the salary threshold, which is bad news, because they do not judge on quality of work, but on politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more. Do more cross training. Communicate changes. Promote within and judge on quality of work, not face time. Stop the politics.
